first_imgAPTN InFocus:Author John Ralston Saul asks why voters don’t question their government more about why they’re failing Aboriginal peoples so badly.In this edition Saul shares his perspective of the Canadian narrative where sympathy for Aboriginal issues somehow turns into blaming Aboriginal peoples for their own misery.Saul also argues that after Aboriginal peoples went from zero lawyers to two-thousand today, “as the Chiefs will tell you, since [the Canadian government] decided they were going to fight us tooth and nail in the courts on the treaties, we had to have lawyers.  We could have had doctors.  It was the government of Canada that forced us to have lawyers.”It’s all in his new book, The Comeback.And then filmmaker, Tracey Deer, tells us all about her new television series, Mohawk Girls, airing Tuesdays on APTN.last_img
